A GROUP of travellers set up camp in the grounds of a Fylde school over the weekend.

Police were called to Kirkham Grammar School on Saturday evening following reports of a camp being set up on the school playing fields on the A583 Blackpool Road.

A police spokesman said: “We received a report at 5.15pm about travellers being on the school grounds.

“We were working with them to find out what their plans were.

“They moved off the site around 7pm on Sunday.”

Vans have since been parked across the entrances to the school on Ribby Road to stop further vehicles getting onto the site.
